Cute house and great location

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house! It was nestled in the woods in a quaint neighborhood. It's a short walk from the lake and down the street from a cute breakfast place. The house itself was three stories and spacious to accommodate our large group for a girl's weekend getaway. It had a very cottage-cozy feel. The only downside was with 10 girls, about half of us didn't have hot water for the shower and we also weren't able to get the WiFi to work. Other than those minor things, we all loved the house and the area. We would definitely recommend it and stay there again!

Wonderful house - exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay here and would definitely stay again. The pictures of the house and property are great, but they don't do it justice. The house is warm and inviting. We didn't want for or miss anything. The proximity to the beach is perfect. Big kids and small were able to play on the play structure and run around the house like crazy people (sorry neighbors). There's almost ZERO traffic which gave me great peace of mind. The beds are comfortable and the ability to open nearly every window in the house really allowed us to take advantage of some unusually warm October days.

The TV is small and the reception is iffy, but if you care that much, bring an Apple TV or Roku. We were able to dial in PBS when it was raining and the kiddos got a bit stir crazy.

I can't say enough good things about the house and working with Jason. I would absolutely stay again and recommend it to anyone.

Pleasant stay in Lakeside

  • 4 of 5

Myself and three of my friends rented this property from Sunday to Wednesday.

The house is very clean and surrounded by trees and other lovely homes. A couple of things come to mind that should be mentioned.

The beds are not of good quality, they are very uncomfortable, no box springs, it appears to be two tops put together. They are very low to the floor. The other thing that was a little disappointing was the TV, poor reception, the picture goes in and out. Trying to watch the debate and the Cubs game was a little frustrating. The screened in porch was lovely, the decorating had some thought put into it. You will need to buy wood to use the fireplace. The games appeared to be for children, so bring adult games if you choose to play one. The restaurants were very good, Frankie's Restaurant and Skip's. Spent time in Michigan city shopping, along with St. Joseph and Saugatuck. The weather was cooperative. If the few things I mentioned were fixed it would have been perfect.

Lakeside Summer Olympics

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and fit a ton of people! Big enough to host a mini- family reunion which included five events in our family beach Olympics. The beach was very clean, nicely maintained, and very spacious! The house is great, many levels and it never felt overcrowded despite how many people we had stay there. We're so excited to come back next year, we're starting our countdown now!!

Pictures don't show "just steps away"

  • 2 of 5

Very hard to find this house easily handled 10 people. The beds, table and chairs, kitchen utensils, dishes, pots and pans. Other than matches or a lighter to light the grill, we lacked for nothing when cooking for a large group. Most of us found the beds uncomfortable and the place needed a little more tlc. Being the senior citizens of the group, we did not frequent the quiet beach very often due to the long hike up and down stairs to the beach. There was a tv in the house but it was only 19 inches having terrible reception with rabbit ears. Reading was impossible in the house because there was only one lamp. There was no sunny open area outside to relax in either because of all trees. The children and grandchildren had no problem with the stairs to the beach and enjoyed the nightly bonfires and dining table games. The washer and dryer were a godsend with all the dirty towels and we never were without hot water even at the outside shower, which the kids loved when returning from the beach. Air conditioning was good for a 3 story house. Close to town with lots of restaurants and on a rainy day we took an hour car ride to Chicago to the Field Museum.

Owner's Response: For two stars this sounds like a pretty good review regardless! I am sorry we did not have enough lamps for reading. Most of house are recessed cans. In regards to tv, this home has wireless internet but not cable tv. The tv is mainly for dvds. This is an excellent rental that most people love, including this renter's family!

My family and I rented this cottage for our Christmas getaway. The house was stocked with everything we needed including some surprise gifts. The area was secluded yet comfy. Our guest loved it. We've rented with Jason before and have a great experience all the time. We will be renting with him again.
